The Counter-Currents 2018 Fundraiser 
Why Boomers Should Not Fear White Nationalism

1,395 words

This is a fundraising pitch with an article sandwiched in the middle. We are kicking off our 2018 Fundraiser a little early this year. Every March I do our corporate accounting and tax filings, and last year, for the first time since 2010 — the year we were founded — Counter-Currents lost money.  Read more …

Robert Brasillach & Notre avant-guerre:
Remembering Robert Brasillach, March 31, 1909–February 6, 1945

Robert Brasillach at his trial in 1945.

3,574 words

Today is the birthday of Robert Brasillach, French journalist, novelist, and film historian (The History of Motion Pictures, co-written with Maurice Bardéche).

It is Brasillach’s fate mainly to be remembered for being the only collaborateur sentenced to death (by firing squad) for “intellectual crimes.”  Read more …

Kingdom Come: Deliverance – A Review

2,027 words

Last month marked the much-anticipated release of Kingdom Come: Deliverance, an open-world action role-playing game (RPG) set in fifteenth-century Bohemia. The game sold five hundred thousand copies across all platforms (PC, PS4, and Xbox One) within two days of its release and surpassed the one million mark after two weeks, an impressive feat for a crowd-funded game developed by an indie studio.

Fier ou coupable d’être blanc

Fidus, Lichtgebet, 1894

1,606 mots

English original here; Slovak translation here

Aujourd’hui, aux Etats-Unis comme dans la plupart des pays du Monde blanc, on dit au petit enfant blanc, à peine en âge de comprendre le langage, qu’il doit se sentir coupable des crimes de ses ancêtres. Coupable d’avoir découvert, conquis, mis en esclavage et tué des non-Blancs à travers le monde…quitte à ce qu’il se perdre en chemin. Coupable, non de ses propres crimes, mais de crimes commis par d’autres personnes de la même race que lui. Read more …

Guns, Privacy, & Clear Backpacks

David Hogg

571 words

The activism of the curiously well-covered David Hogg, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, has resulted in exactly what he wanted: the school is taking action, and will be requiring all students to carry clear backpacks come spring.

Hogg, however, didn’t realize that this was what he’d been asking for. Now he and his fellow students are complaining that the backpacks will violate their right to privacy. Read more …

Music as Revolt Against the Modern World:

Envy’s Tetsuya Fukagawa

Opening remarks

οὐδαμοῦ γὰρ κινοῦνται μουσικῆς τρόποι ἄνευ πολιτικῶν νόμων τῶν μεγίστων (Plato, Republic 424c)

“The forms of music are not changed without the most significant socio-political mores and laws being changed with them.” So writes Plato in his chef-d’œuvre. This insight is borne out by history, and perhaps never more so than in our own time, the post-war twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Read more …

The Struggle for Life in the Prose Edda

Friedrich Wilhelm Heine, The Ash Yggdrasil, 1886

1,480 words

Snorri Sturluson
Translated by Jesse L. Byock
The Prose Edda 
London: Penguin, 2005

There is always an air of mystery surrounding the most ancient religious texts. The great bulk were gradually developed through oral traditions, passed down, and then evolved from generation to generation. We typically know little or nothing about their authors, whether the Brahmins who composed the Upanishads or the Greeks’ notoriously elusive “Homer.” Read more …

Wal-Mart on Black Friday, the free trade utopia

2,208 words

For all of the subtle grace that distinguishes Japanese civilization, the esoteric gabble of Western diplomacy seems to elude its leaders. Every few months, some titan of Tokyo pronounces his low opinion of America and Americans, unveiling his view that our schools are dreadful, our racial minorities backward, our politicians crooks, or our workers lazy.

If I could choose to be anyone from the twentieth century, I would not hesitate for a moment to pick Ernst Jünger. The man did just about everything it was possible to do in his time, and stretched the limits of what one individual can accomplish in a lifetime to their breaking point. Read more …

Muž dvacátého století: vzpomínáme na Ernsta Jüngera (1895-1998)

2,860 slov

English original here; Hungarian translation here

Kdybych mohl být kýmkoliv z dvacátého století, ani na vteřinu bych neváhal s volbou Ernsta Jüngera. Tento muž totiž ve svém vymezeném čase vyzkoušel takřka všechno a napnul hranice toho, čeho může jednotlivec v životě dosáhnout, až na úplné maximum. Jeho nesmírně dlouhý život (zemřel měsíc před svými 103. narozeninami) překlenul Kaiserreich, německou revoluci, Výmarskou republiku, Třetí říši, Spolkovou republiku Německo a konečně v poslední dekádě jeho života také sjednocené Německo – a v každém z těchto období aktivně působil.

Principalities & Powers, Part Three:
The Jungle of Empire

President Obama and Mark Zuckerberg, two leading figureheads of the globalist elite.

2,287 words

One of the redeeming features of imperialism is that it makes for great adventure stories. The works of H. Rider Haggard and Rudyard Kipling and the literature of the American West from James Fenimore Cooper to Louis L’Amour would not have been possible without the empires and imperial problems that provide the setting for their tales. The reason for the relationship ought to be fairly obvious.

Empires offer all the standard fare of blood, guts, intrigue, romance, and action: villains plotting to overthrow civilization, heroes striving to protect it; Read more …

Antifa & the Battle of Coburg

Storm Troopers enter Coburg on October 14, 1922.

4,700 words

The terrorist groups known as Antifa have held the whip hand over the white advocacy movement for a few years now, and that in an utterly brazen manner. Supported explicitly by the entire establishment (except, to his great credit, President Trump), Antifa has taken control of public spaces, attacked whites, and shut down events, with virtually no legal penalties.

The Noble Savage & the Downfall of Western Man:
A Review of The Mosquito Coast

2,454 words

Paul Theroux
The Mosquito Coast
Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1981

I always find it interesting when different people make similar observations based on the same data, yet come to completely different conclusions. Allie Fox, the main character in Paul Theroux’s novel The Mosquito Coast, seems at first to have much in common with many on today’s Dissident Right. He’s disgusted with the ubiquitous commercialization of modern society. Read more …

Architektura a morálka: Zkáza Grenfell Tower

Fakta sice jsou důležitá, mnohem důležitější ale bývají příběhy. Fakta – izolovaná data – lze snadnou zapomenout, ale příběhy se shlukují do infrastruktury našeho světonázoru. Jejich prostřednictvím si utváříme tento světonázor, který následně ovlivňuje, jaké příběhy vyslechneme v jakési nekonečné smyčce zpětné vazby – a právě proto má kontrola nad narativem tak nenahraditelný význam.

The Power of Myth:
Remembering Joseph Campbell,
March 26, 1904–October 30, 1987

Joseph Campbell & his wife, Jean Erdman Campbell, c. 1939.

2,324 words

Joseph Campbell, the famed teacher of comparative mythology, was born on this day in 1904. For many people, including yours truly, he has served as a “gateway drug” into not only a new way of looking at myths, but into a non-materialistic way of viewing the world. And although as a public figure, Campbell mostly remained apolitical, evidence from his private life indicates that he was at least nominally a “man of the Right.” Read more …

White Like You
San Francisco: Counter-Currents Publishing, 2018

James A. Michener, a popular writer of my grandparents’ generation, didn’t publish his first book until he was 39, and this was after he had served as an officer in the US Navy in the Second World War. It seems one needs about four decades of life experience in order to write a decent book. Read more …

The War Against Whites in Advertising

3,913 words

See also the followup article here

The mass-marketing of interracial relationships, particularly white women with black men, has become so ubiquitous and so militant, even the least observant members of our culture have begun to notice. Walking through a mall recently I noticed three large marketing images of couples in three different stores. Two of the three were interracial couples, depicting a white woman and black man; the third couple was white. Perhaps what struck me as most peculiar was the fact that the city where I was shopping, whites make up about 97% of the population, blacks are less than 2%. Read more …

Last November, David Duke failed to win the  governorship of Louisiana, but he did gain some 39 percent of the popular vote and carried a majority — about 55 percent — of the white vote. Read more …
